Letter from the Principal, August 10
Dear Lyndale Families,
Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! It’s hard to believe that the first day of school is a month away. The first day of school for 1st through 5th graders is on Wednesday, September 8th and the first day for our Three School, High Five, and Kindergarten students is on Friday, September 10th. School starts at 8:25am and ends at 2:55pm this year. I am excited to meet all of the Lyndale students, and cannot wait to see them on their first day of school!
Next week you will receive a more detailed email and letter from me with arrival and dismissal procedures, updates regarding health and safety, and who your child’s teacher is. I am also hoping to have more information I can share regarding guidance around Covid protocols and procedures.
Summer Playdate: The PTO is organizing a summer playdate at Lyndale’s playground from 10am-12pm on Saturday, August 14th. All families are welcome to attend. Even though our building is under construction, the playground is still open for use. See the attached flyer for more information.
Save the Date: Please join us on Thursday, September 2nd for our Open House event from 4:00-5:30pm. Open House is a great event to meet your child’s teacher and other families. We hope you all can attend!
Three School Program: We have a new Three School Program at Lyndale. Three School is a half day program for children who are three years old by September 1st. Kate Ryan, a licensed teacher, will be the head teacher, along with Yasmin Abdi, Lisa Taglia, and Sarah Jorgenson (Associate Educators). The program runs Monday through Friday, with the morning session from 8:25-11:25am and the afternoon from 11:55-2:55pm. School bus transportation is available with car seats and an Associate Educator who accompanies them. See the attached flyer for more information or click here to register.
Bus Information: Bus information will come about a week or so before school starts. Information is sent directly from the Transportation Department.
Please reach out to us if you have any questions. Enjoy the final weeks of summer break, and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
